Dew johnnymotto, I assume you moved to San Juan or Ponce? You left out the worst part about city life. Traffic jams!

Marblecrusher I like the small town life, living on 40 acres and the closest town being 15 minutes away and only a population of 2500 at that.

To me, it's the suburbs with woods here and there.
I live in Jacksonville (Stuck here due to long time job) Murder Capital of Florida,Things I like about the Big City Everything is near by lots of stores etc & Great Saltwater Fishing,Things I don't like Crime,Traffic,I would be much happier in a small town in Southern Wv. or Western N.C. (Maybe after I retire?) Green Cove would not be too bad kinda Country but away from the city,We are lucky to have over a acre lot with only woods behind the house so I guess that is a +

TJGARMA03 I love living in a small town. Got everything I need in that small town. There's always something to do out here. If you can fish there's always something to do. Not to mention I like to drive around and explore in my Jeep.

Chrispy Well to each their own…personally I’ll stick to the small towns. You city people have your points, and I’m glad you like city life, other wise my small town would get crowded. Having grown up in a suburb of Detroit(which rocks), lived in Alaska for a while and for the past 19 years in northern Michigan, I wouldn’t want to return to city life, the combat driving….the rat race, just not for me.

Pros of both city and country living, cons of neither.
That's what I am trying to say thank you.

As a feller who grew up in what became the suburbs (and has lived in the big city and tiny town) I promise you drugs are easier to get there than in the big city OR country. Your children will likely become bored at about 15, and someones older sibling gave your kids friend something, and bam. I dont mean to personalize it or say it has anything to do with parenting, or that it will be your kids. Just the way it is. Your particular kids may rise above it, and I hope so. Even if they do, they will have several friends that struggle with dependency of controlled substances, pills, or alcohol before their 18th birthday.

Many "drug dealers" in the city are simply good capitalists; that is the best way they can make money. 2k in a day hanging out with friends or McDonalds night shift for 8.25/hr, which would you take? And much of that 2k is suburban $$$.

It (suburb life) does offer the least crime with the most convinience and nature intermingled, appealing to some 50% of the United States populace. You are right about that, for sure. Great opportunities to do all kinds of stuff, spend a day in the country and catch a ball game that night.

I still prefer the "country" (mtns actually), but for the solitude I can achieve here. Not because the city is big and bad - I have seen that wolfs teeth, he aint THAT scary, lol.

What city do you live in? Obviously someone needed to get out of the ghetto. And I was talking more of suburb areas like if you know buffalo, the tonawanda, Amherst, williamsville, Clarence, those areas. Nice areas full of middle class people who are not Hispanic and pushing kilos of coke out everyday like the cities you are talking about. I am not a fan of huge cities they all have there problems but when you actually do some research an move to a good area instead of shacking up in some Duplex on the corner of 1st and pothead alley, the city is by far more convenient and a better social point of view place to grow up.

First and foremost not CRAZY and definatly not exaggerating............. I'm sorry that your parent's have had problem's. Also, my response was to the jerk talking about the farmer's, etc....... I live on a 400 acre farm that my wonderful Hubby grew up on............ I don't and NEVER would do drugs or feel comfortable being around anyone that did........ My choice..........And the coment's he made as far as ''pig's and horse's'' , my grandchildren have different pet's, that are not in prison. [dog kennel or lot] out here there's no ordinances telling us what we CAN or CAN NOT have.............And no toll boothes...........Again, he's not missed..................

shell I grew up in a little town called Eldorado, Texas.....loved living there...knew everyone, had everything I ever needed or wanted. Now live in San Antonio....BIG difference. It does have its perks..there's plenty to do, but I hate the traffic and crowdedness. I would move back to a small town if I had the opportunity.

I live out in the country,about 12 miles from our small town.It takes me 12 minutes to get to the grocer because I don't have to deal with traffic.Life is easier for me and mine without a million other people crammed up our butt..my kids , just as I did loved growing up with animals as our friends.In my opinion animals can teach a kid compassion,tolerance,patience and love.What can the gangs,cons and drug dealers of the city teach yours ?? The economy is going down the drain but I can't see where the farmer that is planting trees,helping our wildlife to survive and most importantly feeding us is to blame.I consider fun,spending time with my wife,children,grandchildren and lab,riding the fields and dirt roads in our jeeps,walking in the woods,fishing or just enjoying the quiet,beautiful sunsets.The most beautiful women in the world to me is my wife,mother,daughters and granddaughters.What more could any man ask for ?? I take my talents to the shop and build a harley or a jeep.To me you do live in a big city because I live on the 400 acre farm that I grew up on and my only neighbors within a half mile are my mother and one of my daughters family.I wouldn't trade where I live for anywhere and wish you would all move to the city..

Titaness City girl here . No question. Though I am in the suburbs of philly (the best).

I am not originally from the USA and do not mistake "friendliness" of small towns with kindness, acceptance nor tolerance. When I open my mouth , quickly that friendliness becomes annoyance , distrust and at times hostility. That kindness is reserved for people who fit a mold. Of course this isn't true for every small town BUT it has been my experience. And while city living can be a pain I love it because....

I love bookstores with lot lots lots of reading material.
I love experiencing and sharing in different religions and cultures.
I looooooove restaurants
I love access to excellent hospitals.
I love high fashion.
I love how close I am to major airports
I love weird ingredients and specialty foods
I love sleek cars ( and my jeep)
I love a varied education for my kids
I love being able to be alone with others !
I love the theater
I love parades!
I love that my best friend is Irish catholic , her husband is black , I'm Latina and my best friend is gay and no one blinked an eye when we sat down to eat at the Greek restaurant even those who might hate any one of us or hated us as a group could care less.
I love that my kids have employment options ( easy access )

BlueRidgeYJ Born in Northside Hospital, ATL, GA. Raised just north of, left at 22, back at 24, left again at 28. I live in a town of 452 now, but outside "city limits" (lmao). I agree with President Jefferson.

"When we get piled upon one another in large cities, as in Europe, we shall become as corrupt as Europe" T. Jefferson

Human beings are not supposed to live in supercities. Ever see how big animal colonies get? Take a clue...

mjf232 My avatar should answer this one....City. Both have their Pros and Cons. For me, coming from Philadelphia, I cant imagine living anywhere that lacks the conveinence city living offers. Yes, its harsher and faster paced but thats an education all in itself. You learn quick on who can be trusted and who to look out for. Also, theres just plenty more to do. Now I'm not saying there's nothing to do in the country, just saying there's more options in the City. I used to say I wanted to move cause my area sometimes gets on my nerves, then everytime I go away, I tell my wife I want to stay where we are. Country living has its perks too, but I love where I'm from and can't imagine living anywhere else.

sonofabeach As a child on the farm I was warned of the wiles of the city
Of that demon disguised as the dirt in the skies of the city
Well they say the proximity warps their minds
'Til they're shooting one another just to pass the time
And we lived it appeared, both in spite and in fear of the city

I was constantly told how our lives were controlled by the city
How they keep us in debt with the trends that they set, it's a pity
How the beautiful people in the magazines got the normal ones living beyond their means
and the things that they said made me go in my head to the city

When I finally came, there's some things still the same in the city
You're still under the thumb of the rich and the young and the pretty
Well they weren't much different than we might act if there was that many others stacked closely packed
It's an ancient idea but it struck me so clear in the city

It's not a matter of not caring. It ends up being a matter of liability. Maybe it is a city mindset, but people are so willing to sue others for an easy buck, it makes it difficult to help another.

On top of that, some people are just paranoid. You see so many real or fake stories on the internet of someone pretending to be broken down in order to rob you or kidnap you.

Don't be quick to assume it is all selfishness.

Chris M Small(er) town. I grew up in Abilene, TX with a population of just over 100,000. But it was very spread out and you'd never know how many people were there. It's also on the "edge" of the American desert so the location was awesome if you ask me. After college I couldn't get out fast enough. I came to the Dallas (Mesquite) area to look for a job (and my AF Reserve base was close by). I enjoyed it for a while. I met my wife an we got married and are still here, 10 years after getting married and 11 after I moved here.

There are some things I like, such as the variety of food and stuff to do. Abilene didn't have jack when I moved away. I've gotten really plugged into the church we attend and that alone would make it hard to get away from here. In addition, my wife has always lived out here and now my wife is all the family her mom has. So we have stayed and I have not pressed the issue.

I really want to move back to a smaller town. I liked having access to good hunting that I didn't have to drive a few hours for. I liked making my own entertainment growing up. I appreciate the small talk in small towns, all though I prefer to just stick to myself. However, if you are having a problem with a car or the like in a small town, somebody will always help you out. I'm not a fan of big cities, but have accepted that for the immediate future, this is where my life is. My wife understands and after having travelled around west Texas with me, she sees the unique beauty and features of the area that can't be found in a concrete jungle. She also understands when I want to get out of town and want to go hunt with a buddy, or just go hang out on his land and shoot guns and drive four wheelers all day. She's accepted that sometimes I just want to be gone for an entire weekend so I don't lose that part of me.

In the end though, people need to go where they are happiest and the trade offs work best for them and their family. As I said, I've accepted the city life, but prefer the small town. Luckily for me, my town now has a small town feel in many aspects and that can at least keep me happy for the time being.
11-09-2012 10:55 AM
brandon-99tj Small town for sure. Of course im talking a town of MAYBE 200 people....if you count the people that drive thru on the highway.... Born and raised in that town. Everybody knows everybody, i know people will keep an eye on my property for me when im gone. My grocery store is the garden in the back yard and the cattle farmer right outside town. We do have a gas station/store. I wouldnt wanna live anywhere else.
11-09-2012 10:43 AM
KittyPrawn Small towns make me uncomfortable. When I moved from NJ to WA, I had a very hard time adjusting. I hated that people just wanted to stop and talk to me.

It isn't even like I lived in a big city in NJ, but NJ isn't known for being "friendly." It's a very "mind your own business" mindset where I'm from. So, I feel weird being in places that are different. I don't like when people talk to me when I'm waiting in line or sitting on public trans. I don't enjoy small talk, and I often make it very awkwardly.

WA didn't rub off on me, but Fairfax is a lot more like NJ than WA. Give me a bigger city any day. Not only because of attitude, but because I hated that I was limited in restaurants and places. I didn't even have access to an Apple store unless I drove to Seattle, which was a good 45-60 min away.

You're exactly right.
There are no grocery stores in the town of 6000 that I live near (except for the 3 that are there)
My kid only has a pig for a friend (ill be sure to let all of her friends parents know what you think of them)
All the farmers are destroying the economy. (Remember the billions they took in bonuses they took in bailout money? Me neither)
Everybody is fat and ugly here

Are you really that condescending?

klkb I live in the suburbs but wish for a much slower and simpler way of life. The time we spend in Hatteras village, on the Outer Banks, is paradise. I open the door and let the kids go play. The owner of the local store knows them by name. Our neighbors across the street and next to us will prepare our house for a hurricane before we even ask them to just look out for water rising on it. It's both comforting and sucky that everyone knows everyone. Yes, the drawback is the hospital being an hour away, but the local ambulance is always prepared. I do love the convenience of the suburbs and the diverse opportunities and choices we have, but every time we go to Hatteras we keep asking ourselves why we go home.
